Computer Hardware

Computers make up the bulk of our daily interaction today. Gone are more traditional and "analog" machineries in place of digital computing. In the past, computers and their hardware components cost a lot, but as years go by and technology develops further, the prices are becoming more affordable.

Each computer is made up of several different components, and depending on your needs, you may or may not need some of them, such as a discrete graphics processing unit.

Computer Motherboard

The motherboard is a core component to any computer. It has a variety of input and output slots to connect other computer hardware components. It is the foundation of the computer They have network adapters built in as well, enabling Wi-Fi and wired networking.

Central Processing Unit (CPU)

The CPU is the brain of a computer, and is where all of the processing of data and tasks happen.

Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)

All kinds of visuals on the computer go through a GPU. There are two types of GPUs: Integrated in the CPU block, or a discrete GPU which is significantly more powerful for media software and gaming purposes.

Random Access Memory (RAM)

RAM is where the CPU stores temporary information as a placeholder while it runs tasks on your computer. Generally more RAM enables the computer to multi-task better.

Hard Disk Drives (HDD) or Solid State Drives (SSD)

Your data storage devices where your data is all stored. HDDs are mechanical storage drives whereas SSDs are flash-based data storage.

Power Supply Unit (PSU)

It plugs into an electrical wall outlet and powers the computer and the rest of its components.

PC and Laptop Hardware Singapore: The Only Thing That's Supposed to be Hard in Your Life is Your Hardware

PC and Laptop Hardware Singapore: Getting the Most Out of Your System

Let's say you just bought a laptop and you're thinking of enhancing your first-time experience using it; what would you plan to do? Hook it up to a bigger screen? Add extra RAM into the system? The same goes with PCs. Say that you're planning to build your very own personal computer; where do you start? Do you go for the basics or should you go all out on maximizing the system? These are all the questions we have confidence in answering throughout this article. So, bear with us and you just might be in for a laptop experience or PC build of your life.

First and foremost, you have to be aware of the main components of PCs and laptops. We should mention here that the components for laptops are basically identical to those of PCs but they are traditionally miniaturized and adapted for mobile use. Another matter that we need to bring forward is that components for laptops are not intended to be replaced or upgraded (though RAM and HDD are exceptions). As such, let's briefly go over the main hardware components of PCs and laptops.

The Display

This is the main visual medium component of PCs and laptops, with PCs mainly using an extension of a monitor and laptops having their display built with into their whole system.

The Central Processing Unit

More commonly referred to as CPUs, laptops usually come with 2 processor cores, though modern times have include 4-core systems quite effortlessly. Since PCs can handle much more than laptops, they usually carry 4-8 core processors. The main difference of PC and laptop CPUs is the ability to over-clock, with PCs being known to over-clock their CPUs and GPUs. More on GPUs below.

The Graphical Processing Unit

Most laptops have integrated GPUs into their systems while PCs have the freedom to replace and upgrade.

The Memory

A large number of laptops use SO-DIMM memory modules, half the size of PCs' DIMMs. Unlike the previous 2 components, this part of laptops is replaceable and upgradeable.

The Internal Storage

Traditionally, laptops are opted to use HDDs. But nowadays, they come equipped with faster and more reliable SDDs. This goes the same with PCs, though the storage for laptops are more viable to damage due to the constant dangers coming from their mobility.

The Battery and Power Supply

Modern laptops use lithium ion batteries while thinner ones opt for the flatter litium polymer batteries. PCs are excluded from the usage of batteries due to their constant need for a steady power supply.

The Cooling

PCs nowadays are spoiled with cooling choices like bigger and more durable fans and liquid cooling technology. While on the other hand, laptops rely on heat sinks and heat pipes to channel the constant heat away from crucial and sensitive parts of the system.

We could go into more detail with this but the above are all the main hardware components you should be aware of for PCs and laptops alike. Now let's take a look at our tips and tricks on maintaining your hardware. Read on below.

Tips and Tricks on Maintaining Your PC and Laptop Hardware Singapore

  1. When using a laptop, make sure it is placed on a breathable surface. This means not on the bed, not on the carpet, and most certainly not on your lap.
  2. PC building is genuinely fun, make sure you know what you want out of your built before buying so that you can know how to maintain it fully.
  3. Only leave the battery in your laptop when you are not plugged in or when you're not charging it. Like most chargeable devices, it can be overcharged and it'll damage your battery.
  4. Make it a habit to clean everything; your laptop keyboard and screen, your PC tower, the mouse--everything.
  5. The hardware in your system can only be maintained so far. Updating and keeping tabs on the software you use is crucial in not overbearing or allowing them to be outdated.
  6. You are also somewhat a hardware, take rest for every hour that you are on the laptop or PC. This is good for both you and your system of choice.

Don't Make Your Life Hard, Just Maintain Your Hardware

We're serious about this. There were too many stories of laptop frying and desktop explosions that we can tell that root from ill-maintenance. But if you're in need of looking for spare parts or if you're building a PC and want to find a bargain online, then iprice is the right place to be. Check out our many categories like Fans & Cooling, HDDs, Power Supplies, and Graphic Cards. Be sure to be sure of what you purchase beforehand.
